'There is a bird who by his coat,
And by the hoarseness of his note,
Might be supposed a crow.'
It starts at about 5am.
A cacophony of cawing.
A racket of rooks on my roof, teasing snippets of moss from the slates.
Screeching and rasping back and forth.
A murder of crows.
I will bloody murder the crows if this carries on much longer!
One follows me round the village now.
Young, fluffy ruff, and turquoise eyes, watching, waiting. .
I don't remember this lot from last year, just sparrows and swallows, the odd starling down the chimney, and a dear dunnock, sweetly warbling, melodious, unlike his feathered friends currently rioting on the roof, driving me mad.
What to do?
Maybe a Bird Tamer dish might help by osmosis.... Gorgeous treasure here @pollyfern

Documenting my journey has long been part of my journey. Whenever I travel, I record what I see, experiences, colours, patterns, collage, words, images and found objects become an integral part of my journal.
Experiencing new things, new places is so inspiring, especially if it is out of our normal reality! I think we get so used to our daily surroundings, that they become almost invisible to us. But when we are somewhere unfamiliar, our “artist eye” shows up and everything becomes an inspiration and the urge to record it and hold on to it is strong. I capture moments, make sketches, write down my emotional response to what surrounds me!
Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory. —DR. SEUSS

The magic of Summer. 💫 Late nights, pool days and dark skin. Side note, but I’ve been focusing lately to learn from children. 1. They’re almost always positive 2. They have audacity 3. They are determined to get whatever they want 4. They love unconditionally. Some pieces of wisdom for all of us. 🌟 #sweetleahgrace
Despite the stress, the heartache, and the monsters under my bed, this skyline still takes my breath away like it’s the first time I’m looking at it. EVERY. TIME. #Dallas #Texas #ThisIsHome

Last week marked my 10 year anniversary moving back to Portland after 8 years in New York. I miss The City often, but am so incredibly grateful for my proximity to family, childhood (and adulthood) friends, the mountains, the ocean, and limitless potential for outdoor adventure. Thanks for welcoming me with open arms, PDX. I love you and all your absurd quirks - you remind me of me. #pdx #portlandnative #oregonian #keepportlandweird #beerme #thisishome #ilivehere #home @upnorthsurfclub
